2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark dep amber brown with a frothy, lasting tan head. Smells of strong liquorish, ginger, malt, roasted malt, spice and ginger. Medium to light oily body and light carbonation. Tastes like soda but with strong liquorish. elements, Roasted malt with strong dry ginger and a bitter rather metalic finish. The Old Tom is good but the ginger here makes it worse. An interesting novelty though.

330 ml bottle into pint glass, L1306 bottle code. Pours fairly crystal clear deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big ginger, pear, raisin, plum, caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, herbal, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of ginger/pear juice, dark/bready malt, and fruity yeast ester notes; with great strength. Taste of big ginger, pear, raisin, plum, caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, herbal, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Slight herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of ginger, pear, raisin, plum, caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of ginger/pear juice, dark/bready malt, and fruity yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Spiced English ale. Al around great robustness and balance of ginger/pear juice, dark/bready malt, and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Fin rødbrun farge med et beige skum som raskt ble borte. Aroma av ingefær og malt. Smaken føler aroma og de blir alt for mye ingefær for min smak.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2014 A clear brown body with a very quickly fading light brown head. Nose is heavy on the ginger, with some hints of chokolate. Taste is dominated by a gingerly burn, but sweet chokolate is evident on the finish. Carbonation is soft, the finish is rich and has a warming burn. A little over the top.

El dulzor se comió la cerveza. Alcohol muy disociado de la mezcla. Tiene mejor pinta de lo que realmente es. Aceptable. No la volvería a comprar.
